3/25 Good eyes

One of the perks of the Cubs’ new complex in Mesa is that there’s room for a Ping-Pong table, and there have been some competitive matches. One of the top players so far in camp is Darwin Barney, who has beaten Jake Arrieta four times and won two out of three best-of-five series against Anthony Rizzo.

“Riz and I both use it as a warm up for our eyes,” Barney said. “It’s very valuable for hand-eye coordination.”

It gets the competitive juices going, too.

Why aren’t there distance signs on the outfield fence or foul poles at Cubs Park?

Just wanted to thank you for this post and many others. You give a more inside, entertaining picture of the Cubs than any of your peers. Thank you and please keep it up.
